Weekend report by Sam Webb of The Sahara Mustard & Volutaria Weed Eradication Task Force
We have Volutaria, but the Sahara mustard invasion has returned big-time, see photos below. A crew must go out to Rockhouse Canyon Road to remove the huge mustard infestation which begins 5.4 miles from the intersection of Rockhouse Canyon Rd with Hwy S-22.
These photos shows locations where we have Sahara mustard growing. It is especially heavy along S-22 between the airport and the elementary school, with much of it in bloom. It is just starting to come up along the alternate trail in Palm Canyon.
